Fiasco in Franklin

Dear Editor: In today's world of newspapers, it often reeks of a stale environment when it comes to reporters actually reporting and the opinionated writing of columnists. What a deep breath of fresh morning air when reading two particular articles in your Sunday edition. Nat Harwell's column on his remembrance of his dad's respect for our national anthem and the commitment of veterans everywhere was especially moving and sincere. Say what you want about Nat, but his columns do make you think, not only about Newton County, but most importantly, the state of affairs in the entire ...

Don't pass it!

Dear Editor: On Saturday night the health care reform bill passed the U.S. House by a vote of 220-215. Well, they in Washington have done it again. They have passed this bill without listening to the people. This health care reform is suppose to cost only about $ 1.5 trillion over the next ten year so they say. I could see that being possible when you see that they will be cutting the Medicare by about $500 million. I do not think it will just cost $1.5 trillion just because has there been any thing like this in ...

Please pre-empt

Dear Editor: The CW is threatening once again to cross the boundaries of good taste, social responsibility and decency by promising to air a sexual threesome between three major characters in the teen-targeted drama "Gossip Girl."

True friends

Dear Editor: If you weren't at the meeting of the Friends of the Library on Tuesday night, you missed a truly special event. Four fabulous women (Louly Hay, Loy Summers, Judy Greer and Jane Atkinson) shared their memories of Newton County going back 60 or more years (with some help from the audience). These four women embody so much of what makes this a special place to live: dedication to family, friends and community, committment to education and the arts and that special sense of humor that is native to the south.

As I sat in the meeting last ...

What a waste

Dear Editor: I wasted a perfectly good Thursday evening attending the "Health care town hall meeting" which the Covington News featured at the top of page one of its Oct. 28 edition. It was a BIG disappointment. The "panel of health care experts" was non-existent, the "attempt to separate facts from myths" turned out to be a myth, and the structure of the meeting was not conductive to open discussion, but rather a very biased presentation of one side of the health care issue. I hope you research your articles more carefully in the future. I expected more objectivity from ...

Teens keeping it real

Dear Editor: "Not impossible, but I'M possible!" was the vibrant message given by Keith Brown, the "Motivator of the Millennium" to just under 100 teens at the recent "Teens Keeping It Real" summit at Newton High School, and on behalf of the Newton County Community Partnership we want to thank all the volunteers and funders who made this conference happen. The goal of the Summit was to motivate, educate and inspire Newton's youths for success at home, in school and with employment, and everyone left more than satisfied. Youth were given an opportunity for leadership and excellence and ...

My letter to Marshall

Dear Editor: I have sent a letter to Rep. Jim Marshall saying that President Obama's signature of the Defense Authorization Bill that includes "hate crimes" against homosexuals and transgender is outrageous. It is outrageous that it is a violation of Equal Protection Under the Law as defined by the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution. It also makes a person criminal for thinking about doing the crime rather than person actually committing the crime.

Don’t give me a sign

Dear Editor: Our Newton Board of Commissioners has revised a request regarding billboard placement on Interstate 20 right of way. This request was rejected by our planning commission, and if approved would gut a sign ordinance passed and court tested years ago.

Letters to the Editor - Let it shine

Dear Editor: I had the opportunity to attend a performance of the Social Circle Theater "Stories from the Well - Let it Shine" this past weekend. What a hidden treasure we have in our area! The Theater itself is a gem of a venue. The many cast members, including very young chidren, had obviously rehearsed their lines and choreography endlessly. The play had an uplifting message and every member of the cast was enthusiastic and talented. According to the program notes, the script was written, directed and performed by local talent. They did, indeed, "Let It Shine" on Friday evening.

Letters to the Editor - Phantom garbage

Dear Editor: I can't believe Ms. Pittman would print a story about the murder of a young boy at the Alcovy Trussel without notifying the family that this type of garbage is going to be published. Ya'll are pathetic people!!!! Why would you intentionally hurt and bring up such a horrible incident as this, that they are now having to relive after 23 yrs. How would it feel if this was a member of your family. I hope this is a lesson learned and my prayers are with the family of this precious young boy who was loved ...

Letters to the Editor - Dog Day Afternoon

Dear Editor: The inclement weather did not curb the enthusiasm of anyone who attended Georgia Rescue and Rehabilitations first annual A Dog Day Afternoon on October 17 at Hard Labor Creek State Park.

Thanks to Social Graces, in downtown Covington and Flaunt Salon in Covington that donated items for our auction and helped to make it a great success.

Please slow down

Dear Editor: Every morning, I stand outside and watch my son as he waits at the bus stop. Every morning, my son and the other kids at the bus stop have to jump into the ditch to keep from getting run over by cars that come speeding down the road, swerving. Our road, Airport Road, is a short cut between highways 142 and 81. The speed limit is 35, but it is rarely, if ever, followed, even by law enforcement. I have stood in the road in an effort to slow people down, only to be cussed out by the ...

Disappointed by vendor

Dear Editor: I would like to begin by thanking the Rotarians for bringing the car show to Covington to benefit the young people of the Miracle League.

Being a small business owner myself, I know how important it is to be supportive of other local business owners. I was very disappointed that the restaurant The Varsity was brought in from Atlanta to sell food during this function. We have our own local restaurants that people could have chosen to eat at.
